voice. we are under a vote right now. this is what we used. the biggest voice in the united states is the voice of the american people. i was reading in the journals . . that is the wife of our second president. our second president, john adams. abigail adams wrote in her journals and diaries, and very personal insight. she said, after all we have done. after all that has happened. i wonder if generations on born will ever know what was done for them. at the sacrifice, the toyo, -- toil, treasure, heartache, what was spent to secure liberty and freedom. the fathers knew the cost. you literally stand with us on how aground. this is hallowed ground of freedom. that freedom was purchased at an incalculable price that others of us cannot truly comprehend. for 233 years, every generation that has come before has faithfully handed the baton of freedom to the next generation. so now, we are that privileged generation. privileged to be here today. privileged as you stand here in place for other freedom loving americans all over the country today. they would give anything to be where you ar
that we have had the highest deficit in the history of the united states, $1. trillion, -- the $1.4 trillion, the pelosi plan comes in weighing at $1 trillion. when we just got unemployment figures back, think about this, the president with an 8.5% unemployment rate pushes upon the congress a $787 billion stimulus bill and now unemployment has gone from 8.5% to 10.2% and in so many other pockets of america it's 14%, 15% and 16%. where are the jobs? why have we taken the focus off the main thing, the economy? why are we going down the track of government takeover of health care? and massive mandates on individuals, doctors and small businesses? just like china. mr. speaker, 1,900 pages, it's ridiculous. the republican alternative, which is not even half, not even 25%, but i'd say maybe 15% in size, weighing in at say maybe a mere $1 -- 150 pages, bring more competition for individuals, association health care plan to let small businesses pool together, expansion of health savings accounts, medical malpractice reform to reduce frivolous lawsuits. this is the republican alternative a
